Oklahoma commit Milos Uzan took control of the final Friday night game tonight in the Duel in the Desert showcase from the opening tip. Uzan and his Dream City Christian (10-3) teammates controlled the flow of the game all night long against Minnesota Prep (4-4).
The Eagles rolled to an 86-60 victory with recent LSU commit Yohan Traore being named the Powerade player of the game. Traore came out fierce and strong tonight scoring at will and dominating the game from both ends of the court. Yohan finished with 22 points and 14 rebounds for coach Kyle Weavers’ squad and showed LSU fans what a great player they will be getting next season. Traore twice in the first half brought down the defensive rebound and then showed his ball handling skills going the full length of the floor with spectacular dunks to score.
